Hi all - hoping to get some advice from some experts here - done a fair bit of research on YouTube so know some of the basics but hoping there might be someone with knowledge of the Alps / Annecy area.
Met with a couple of local sales people - an independent and Desjoyeux. Both use concrete structure with liners because they say that concrete is vulnerable to cracking with the temperature changes in the Alps.
I’ve seen quite a lot of videos about gunite / shotcrete pools on YouTube and my partner has come across a local firm called Diffazur who use this technique - this is probably my prefered type as I think it looks better than vinyl.
Desjoyeux advised there’s no advantage to using a coque pool because you still need the concrete structure in this area and it’s may also crack if there’s ground movement. I’ve read on this forum that the monoblock filter is not the best.
